Your Old Droog Not Nas! Non-Mystery Solved!
It’s safe to say -musically- it’s been a relatively calm summer. Albums just weren’t popping as they were a year or even two years ago. Most of the critical discussion has been about Iggy and even that is just the latest in the long time of White Girls doing Black Girl things, making everyone keep some type of way in between.
Amidst all that boring ish, the internet was bugging out about Your Old Droog. His self titled EP was a breath of fresh air in a pretty stale summer. More so, this dude not only sounded like but shared a cadence similar to Nas. It was crazy, people started building mad conspiracy theories around him to prove that Droog was indeed Nasir Jones pretending to a Russian dude. Despite credible evidence from people in the know and some journalists, people were certain either he was Nas or Nas was involved some how.
No thing on Droog, he ran with it. Kept the mystery up, played into the hype and it helped him have a seller debut performance to a sell out crowd at Webster Hall.
